Charles Frith

And for those with limited bandwidth it's just as good a script to read. Another myth busted :) (I hope you don't mind the cut 'n paste on this one)

Quentin's Monologue from 'Sleep With Me'
Originally written by Roger Avary

What's a film about, what's it really about? What genre does it

[Duane: What, like the spine? Like one sentence?]

No, I don't, fucking boy meets girl, I don't give a shit about
that. Fuck boy meets girl, fuck motorcycle movie. No, what is really
being said? What's really being said, that's what you're talking about.
'Cause the whole idea, man, is subversion. You want subversion on a
massive level. You know what one of the greatest fucking scripts ever
written in the history of Hollywood is? Top Gun.

[Duane: Oh, come on.]

Top Gun is fucking great. What is Top Gun? You think it's a story
about a bunch of fighter pilots. [Duane: It's about a bunch of guys
waving their dicks around.] It is a story about a man's struggle with
his own homosexuality. It is! That is what Top Gun is about, man.

You've got Maverick, all right? He's on the edge, man. He's right
on the fucking line, all right? And you've got Iceman, and all his
crew. They're gay, they represent the gay man, all right? And they're
saying, go, go the gay way, go the gay way. He could go both ways.

[Duane: What about Kelly McGillis?]

Kelly McGillis, she's heterosexuality. She's saying: no, no, no,
no, no, no, go the normal way, play by the rules, go the normal way.
They're saying no, go the gay way, be the gay way, go for the gay way,
all right? That is what's going on throughout that whole movie...

He goes to her house, all right? It looks like they're going to
have sex, you know, they're just kind of sitting back, he's takin' a
shower and everything. They don't have sex. He gets on the motorcycle,
drives away. She's like, "What the fuck, what the fuck is going on
here?" Next scene, next scene you see her, she's in the elevator, she
is dressed like a guy. She's got the cap on, she's got the aviator
glasses, she's wearing the same jacket that the Iceman wears. She is,
okay, this is how I gotta get this guy, this guy's going towards the
gay way, I gotta bring him back, I gotta bring him back from the gay
way, so I'm do that through subterfuge, I'm gonna dress like a man. All
right? That is how she approaches it.

Okay, now let me just ask you--I'm gonna digress for two seconds
here. I met this girl Amy here, she's like floating around here and
everything. Now, she just got divorced, right?...

All right, but the REAL ending of the movie is when they fight the
MIGs at the end, all right? Because he has passed over into the gay
way. They are this gay fighting fucking force, all right? And they're
beating the Russians, the gays are beating the Russians. And it's over,
and they fucking land, and Iceman's been trying to get Maverick the
entire time, and finally, he's got him, all right? And what is the last
fucking line that they have together? They're all hugging and kissing
and happy with each other, and Ice comes up to Maverick, and he says,
"Man, you can ride my tail, anytime!" And what does Maverick say? "You
can ride mine!" Swordfight! Swordfight! Fuckin' A, man!


Just search on YouTube for "Gay Top Gun" or "Brokeback Top Gun" - both are fantastic!
